Ardian Real Estate sells Konrad office complex after comprehensive repositioning

Ardian

Frankfurt / Munich, March 2, 2020: Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, has signed an agreement to sell the KONRAD office complex to a 50-50 joint venture between Union Investment and Hansainvest. The transaction takes place approximately three years after the acquisition of the Wappenhalle office complex in Munich-Riem as the first real estate investment in the German-speaking market by the Ardian Real Estate team. During the investment phase, Ardian and its real estate team completed comprehensive upgrade measures. In this context, the real estate complex was repositioned and renamed KONRAD in September 2017. The modern high-grade office complex, which comprises about 34,000 sqm of office space, consists of the Wappenhalle (“Coat of Arms Hall”), a listed building originally built in 1939, and nine further buildings connected by glass structures and situated around a courtyard garden. The parties have agreed not to disclose any financial details relating to the transaction.

Since the acquisition by Ardian in 2017, the quality and attractiveness of the areas has been significantly increased – among other things through the renovation and redesign of the two entrance areas, modernization of the façade and interior areas, and an upgrade of the garden and courtyard. A sum in the tens of millions of euros was invested for the upgrade measures and the rebranding. An important milestone occurred in 2019 with the achievement of a 100 percent occupancy rate by 30 tenants under long-term lease agreements. Most recently, a modern dining area was created on the property in September 2019 and is operated by Leonardi. The Wappenhalle is still used under its existing name as a high-quality venue for galas, trade fairs and exhibitions as well as for conferences. For the repositioning of KONRAD, in February 2020 Ardian Real Estate received the German immobilienmanager award in the “Investment” category.

Bernd Haggenmüller, Senior Managing Director and responsible for the DACH region for Ardian Real Estate, said: “We have fully achieved our goals for KONRAD. The building complex has been successfully repositioned and modernized. It has been significantly upgraded through targeted investments and has attractive unique selling points with the Wappenhalle and the associated combination of tradition and modernity. After reaching full long-term occupancy in 2019, this demonstrates that the measures have been very well received by both existing and prospective tenants.”

ARDIAN REAL ESTATE AND BANCA MPS SIGNED AGREEMENT FOR A TRANSACTION ON A REAL ESTATE PORTFOLIO

Ardian

The portfolio consists of 28 buildings, mainly offices, with most located between Milan, Rome, Florence and Padua. The acquisition includes five significant historical buildings.

Milan, February 28, 2020 – Ardian, a world leading private investment house, has signed an agreement with Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena for the acquisition of a portfolio composed of 28 properties, owned by the MPS Group. The agreement concludes a competitive process started in July 2019. This follows a period of exclusivity granted to Ardian on February 10.

The portfolio consists of 28 buildings primarily intended for office use mostly located across Milan, Rome, Florence and Padua. The total commercial area spans across approximately 90,000m².

Notably, the portfolio includes five historical buildings which carry unique historical value and are considered artistically and architecturally significant. Between them they represent most of the value of the entire portfolio. Among these buildings is the Bank’s historic headquarters in Milan in Via Santa Margherita, a few steps from Piazza della Scala. The façade on Piazza Ferrari was designed by prominent architect, designer and urban planner Luigi Caccia Dominioni. Palazzo Alinari in the historical centre of Florence and late 19th century building in the famous Via del Corso in Rome that connects Piazza Venezia to Piazza del Popolo.

According with Ardian’s strategy, these five prestigious buildings will be the subject of redevelopment which will aim to create office and retail space.

In the coming weeks, Banca MPS and Ardian will enter into a Preliminary Sale and Purchase Agreement. The completion of the planned acquisition, for most properties, will be complete by the second half of 2020.

Rodolfo Petrosino, Senior Managing Director Southern Europe of Ardian Real Estate, commented: “We are very pleased about the acquisition of this significant real estate portfolio, boasting some unique trophy assets. Our investments in Italy, in the real estate sector, now rise to around €1 billion and positions us among the most active players in the Italian market. This is largely due to the skills and experience of our local team and Ardian’s international platform. We have already made significant investments in Italy and we will continue to select promising opportunities in the core-plus and value-added real estate segment”.

Advisors for Ardian were NCTM for the legal, fiscal and administrative part, Studio Gattai, Minoli, Agostinelli Partners and Studio Legale Gattamelata e Associati for the administrative due diligence and REAAS for the technical and environmental due diligence.

ARDIAN REAL ESTATE ACQUIRES OFFICE BUILDING IN MILAN

Ardian

The transaction was conducted through a multi-compartment SICAF managed by Prelios SGR

Milan, February 17, 2020 – Ardian, a world-leading private investment house, has acquired a 7,000 sq.m building in Piazza Fidia 1, Milan, from Generali Real Estate S.p.A. SGR. The acquisition marks Ardian Real Estate’s third investment in Milan, and eighth in Italy.

Built in 1968, the free-standing office building in Milan’s dynamic Isola district is strategically located half-way between Porta Nuova and Scalo Farini, a disused railway yard due to be fully redeveloped as part of a wider redevelopment plan for the area.

The refurbishment plan for the building will involve a complete refurbishment in line with the highest international standards for energy performance, sustainability and architecture.

The purchase is Ardian’s second acquisition through the SICAF, an independently managed fixed-capital real estate multi-compartment investment company managed by Prelios SGR, in which Ardian is the sole investor. The SICAF previously acquired an office building in Via Roncaglia 12/14 in a central area in south-west Milan, from Sator Immobiliare SGR.

As an investor in AIFs managed by Prelios SGR, Ardian Real Estate has invested approximately €500 million to date in properties in Milan and Rome mainly intended as office buildings.

Rodolfo Petrosino, Senior Managing Director for Ardian Real Estate’s operations in Southern Europe, said: “This deal perfectly highlights our strategy of investing in the best core plus-value added opportunities in the Italian market, where we can create value through our important partnership with Prelios. The redevelopment plan, to be launched shortly, will transform the area, and will enable us to attract high-quality tenants for this building.”

Alessandro Busci, Head of Fund Management at Prelios SGR, added: “We are proud of our partnership with Ardian Real Estate, which has been strengthened through this new acquisition. In a competitive market, achieving returns that match investors’ risk appetites depends increasingly on the fund manager’s ability to maximize the value of the assets under management. So, we are delighted that Ardian Real Estate, and our investors, see Prelios SGR as an effective partner that can help them achieve their objectives. The building will be redeveloped and repositioned so that we can make the most of its potential value.”

The transaction was completed with Chiomenti advising on legal and tax Gattai, Minoli, Agostinelli, Partners as administrative advisors, General Planning as architectural advisors and Agire who carried out the technical and environmental due diligence.

Partners Group acquires portfolio of 30 European office and logistics properties

Partners Group

Partners Group, the global private markets investment manager, has, on behalf of its clients, acquired a majority equity stake in a portfolio of 30 commercial properties in Germany, France and the Netherlands. The properties are part of a portfolio previously owned by Imfarr Beteiligungs GmbH and SN Beteiligungen Holding AG, and were acquired for a total transaction value of over EUR 550 million. The acquisition is a joint venture with Peakside Capital Advisors AG (“Peakside”).

The portfolio consists of 27 office and three logistics properties and is mostly located in Germany, with the remaining assets based in greater Paris and Amsterdam. The German portfolio includes buildings in Munich, Hamburg, and Stuttgart, as well as the greater Düsseldorf and Frankfurt regions, and comprises a well-diversified tenant base. Following the acquisition, Partners Group and Peakside will work on a range of value creation opportunities, including repositioning several properties, to optimize the portfolio’s value.

Lars Kreutzmann, Co-Head Private Real Estate Europe, Partners Group, states: “This acquisition significantly expands our real estate portfolio in Germany and underlines the importance of the German market for us on a relative value basis. The portfolio benefits from attractive prime and secondary office locations and is a great fit with our value creation strategy, whereby we focus on properties that can benefit from repositioning with sufficient time and capital. We plan to undertake a multi-year value creation program to maximize value for our clients.”

Mike Bryant, Co-Head Private Real Estate, Partners Group, adds: “This portfolio was originally part of a larger real estate portfolio that was brought to market close to a year ago. Following that sales process, which we followed closely, we were given the opportunity, through our network, to acquire the assets that best align with our relative value strategy. This targeted sourcing makes this acquisition a great fit for our Real Estate Opportunities strategy.”

In December 2019, Partners Group also agreed on behalf of its clients the sale of the “City Campus” office complex, situated on Saatwinkler Damm in the Charlottenburg district of Berlin, for a transaction value of around EUR 200 million. The property, which was repositioned during Partners Group’s holding period, includes 55,640 sqm of rental area and 479 parking spaces across six buildings.
